School Closures

Pirate FM has learnt schools across Cornwall are facing fresh financial pressure.

The government promised it would keep funding the same but there is less to spend in class because services are becoming more expensive.

Now nine are coming together to share resources, including primaries in Otterham, Boscastle, Delabole, Port Isaac, Camelford and Tintagel.

Executive head at St Breward and St Teath Lee Bacchus tells us although none of the schools is under threat - he wants it to stay that way: "The impact that it has on the village is quite devastating. People would be reluctant to move into the village. They might find it difficult to stay in the village if they've got children. It can have a quite profound effect, beyond the closure of the school, on villages like St Breward if anything like that happened.

"We often get the headline: 'Schools funding isn't being cut.' The difficulty we've got is that funding is staying the same, but all the services we relied on are being cut. Or we're having to pay a lot of money for services that were provided by local authorities - and they've gone."
